Where will the basket of the crane go once the antenna starts to get past the base of it where it's freestanding by it's own? Will that blue steel have to be built up to hold the basket? Seems like they would free stand it with the self jacking cage like the outside Favco on tower 4 has

Tours at One World Trade Center. Some of you guys who live in New York should go on a tour and snap some pictures

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...961859640.html

Power Peeking at One World Trade

New Yorkers with connections are increasingly asking one another this question: Have you taken a tour of One World Trade?

The skyscraper rising from ground zero isn't scheduled to open until late 2013, but an early look inside has become a bragging right for the people who have managed to get access.

Hundreds of One World Trade Center tours have quietly been arranged in the past year as the new building has taken shape on the downtown skyline, mostly through the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the site's developers and designers.

The most widely known visit was President Barack Obama's on June 14 with the governors of New York and New Jersey, Andrew Cuomo and Chris Christie, respectively.

But industry leaders, Financial District locals, Army veterans, Fleet Week sailors, friends of Port Authority staffers and dozens of others with friends in the right places have also been granted tours.

Among the bold-face names who have visited are astronaut Buzz Aldrin and Jets players including Nick Mangold. British Prime Minister David Cameron was a guest in March, and other foreign leaders have been there as well. Fashion designer Nicole Miller has been invited but hasn't gone yet.

"I felt special to be invited," said David Williams, the owner of a nearly 100-year-old nursery in Westfield, N.J., who went on a tour in June, arranged by a friend who edits a gardening magazine, with some of the nation's leading botanists. "Everyone wants to know what it's like and can't wait until the tower opens."

The tours are open to anyone, said one person familiar with how to arrange them, though there isn't a formal process for requesting a trip through a tower. The tours are limited by construction schedules and safety precautions.

"The World Trade Center site is a place of special significance for the region, the country, and people abroad," said a Port Authority spokesman. "As such, we are always willing to accommodate tours when schedules permit us to give access to this remarkable project."

The 104-story building remains an epic work in progress.

No two tours are alike. As visitors move upward, the space changes from finished floors to essentially empty office space, with steel beams, electric wires and plumbing tubes still visible in some cases.

The excursions are often guided by a Port Authority employee or other authorized tour guides who lead visitors to a hoist elevator taking them to the 20th floor or a little higher. From there, they have a clear, 360-degree view of Lower Manhattan and its surroundings, including the National Sept. 11 Memorial, the Hudson River and the skyscrapers of the Financial District.

Once inside, "the building disappears and it's all about the views: sky, water, tall buildings, small buildings, and a horizon wrapping it all," said Pamela Maffei McCarthy, the deputy editor of the New Yorker magazine, who toured the building with other employees of Conde Nast, the media company that will relocate to the tower.

"Real, 'Wow, I'm in New York' views," she said via email.

If time permits and there's interest, visitors can take the elevator to the highest floor completed. Mr. Williams said he signed a steel beam on the 55th floor.

For some visitors, the tour brought back memories of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and conjured feelings of pride in the progress since.

"It's very emotional," said Jon Bramnick, a New Jersey Assemblyman who went with other lawmakers on a tour with Bill Baroni, the deputy executive director of the Port Authority.

The tours help build buzz for and show off the progress of a structure that has struggled to attract tenants.

One World Trade Center is about 55% leased, and the other towers around the site have even fewer commitments from tenants. Prospective tenants have been among those offered the tours.

The effort isn't unlike a restaurant or nightclub's "soft opening," said Andrew Saffir, the founder of the Cinema Society, an organization that screens new movies and throws parties tied to their premieres.

"It lets you iron out the kinks while still testing the waters and it has a word-of-mouth effect," Mr. Saffir said.

The site holds undeniable interest for the city's designers and architects who have argued over the tower's aesthetics for the past decade.

Mark Bearak, an architecture professor at Columbia University, hasn't been offered a tour and said he is "rapt" when he hears details of its interior in social settings.

Rick Bell, the executive director of the American institute of Architects, said he jumped at the chance to take a tour with a friend who works for the tower's design firm, SOM. "It's the most debated building in the world right now," he said.

A version of this article appeared August 13, 2012, on page A15 in the U.S. edition of The Wall Street Journal, with the headline: Power Peeking at One World Trade.

I'm updating the model to include the north crane, but I'm limited to what I can see on a single engineering diagram that was posted on here a week or two ago. It looks like the south crane [the only one in that render] will be used mainly on the large part of the communication ring structure on the south side. the blue steel above the large ring on the the south side can't be installed until after that crane is removed [I will leave that section out in the next render for clarification]. The north crane [not in render yet] will more likely than not have a climber and will tie into the taller part of the temporary steel and complete the spire/antenna above the temporary dock [forgot the term, think of the ramp in the hub site from the street] at the top of the temporary structure. In my model I'm setting up the north crane to the maximum freestanding height, assuming it is tied into the very top of the temporary structure. I'm going to re-frame the 105th slab because the design has changed and now the corners appear filled in instead of open and include the cooling tower supports. I Hope to get the new render done later today when I get a little free time.

probably were the lifting the safety netting because both cranes were in the same position and the load (spreader bar) was too.


This is the spreader for the netting, photo i took in feb. 2011
